Which is a good thing because if he were I would have to tell him to go violate himself with something sharp. Why you might ask? Because after seeing Godspeed You! Black Emperor last night I have to wonder what the fuck he was doing when he worked with them on Yanqui U.X.O. After hearing this rather weak and neutered sounding album I was afraid that perhaps GY!BE had gone soft on the world. But no, seeing them live in full fury I realized they were still the scariest musical beast on the planet when opened up. So I have to lay the blame on Albini for this one.
And for anyone who gets a chance to see them live, you will be missing something amazing if you pass it up. When Sophie sets to murdering her violin and Efrim is conjuring up the most unholy sounds ever heard from his guitar, you realize that sound can make statements about war and violence far more eloquently than words could ever hope to.
